Strava acquired Recover Athletics, the prehab app for runners, which gives its subscribers access to the company’s content, including personalized prehab and injury prevention exercise plans.
Recover Athletics, founded in 2018 by Nick Kafker and Nick Stewart, creates exercise routines based on runners’ training and soreness data. The company collaborated with physicians and physical therapists from Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital and Mass General Brigham in Boston to create its content and algorithms, matching runners with “evidence-based exercises” to stay injury-free.
Before the acquisition, Recover Athletics used Strava’s API to customize recommendations for athletes based on their training data. Athletes can sign into their Strava account on the Recover app, integrate their Strava data and access Recover’s features.
By next year, Recover Athletics said it would use Strava’s resources to expand its platform beyond helping runners.
